Xulu’s Maritzburg Season Compared To His Stay With Chiefs

Siyanda Xulu's Maritzburg United Season Compared To His Stay With Kaizer Chiefs

By Soccer Laduma - May 18, 2018 06:15 PM

Siyanda Xulu completed the move to Maritzburg United from Kaizer Chiefs at the beginning of the 2017/18 campaign where he secured more game-time under his belt than his entire time with the Soweto giants.  

“It means a lot to reach the final, especially looking at how things didn’t look so promising for me coming here from two years of not enough game-time. Some would have thought that it was going to take me forever to get back on my feet,” Xulu said in Soccer Laduma’s preview of the upcoming Nedbank Cup final.

From playing just 903 minutes and making just 10 appearances in two seasons with Chiefs, the defender is now on his way to a cup final with The Team of Choice. 

Since joining the club at the beginning of the season, Xulu has played 3217 minutes, making 37 appearances in all competitions for the club and has scored three goals. 

There is no doubt that the player is revelling in the chance that he has been given by the KwaZulu-Natal-based club, with the 26-year-old just one game away from potentially lifting the 2018 Nedbank Cup trophy.

To read the entire Nedbank Cup final with comments from the likes of Xulu, Thela Ngobeni and Head Coach Fadlu Davids, check out this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma, issue number 1073.

The young man had a hard time being coached by Kompela. Such a dark-skinned black man from the Xhosa villages speaking soo much English really disturbed Xulu since he thought he found a brother.

Failing to make it in one team does not make a player , a bad professional footballer. Some players are not cut for big teams where there is pressure not to make mistakes. Siya knows he scored own goals at Khosi because of pressure. Now he is back to his best. Well done to him. Good luck for the final.

@JAWS OF LIFE Your username suggests you are a Jomo Cosmos fan. Cup final is not an unknown word at Naturena. During Xulu's stay with us he featured in two cup finals. What is unknown in Naturena is campaigning in NFD and competing in PSL play-offs.

I don't think it's fair to do this comparison, Xulu was also not playing in Turkey but that 1 is not raised. I don't support zebbies but it's unfair to make such comparison. Xulu nd his father chose zebbies over Sundowns. Even Gabuza can make it in de Maritzburg starting line up
